A news report from Bartow: A woman who gave birth at Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center in 2003 has filed a lawsuit in which she accuses the obstetrician of leaving a sponge inside her. The patient is suing Dr. Edwin Salamanca, Heart of Florida OB/GYN Associates and the hospital, contending the sponge in her vagina led to infection. Normal hospital procedures call for the careful counting of sponges as they are placed in the body and as they are being removed. In addition, almost all sponges contain threads that can be clearly seen on X-rays.
